A great way to learn about the lobster trade in Maine. We got to see seals and a porpoise during our cruise. It is really cold on the water so I definitely recommend a warm jacket.

My family and I enjoyed the experience aboard the Lulu Lobster Boat. The captain and mate were very informative and really did their best to show us all of the landscape and wildlife around the harbor.

I viewed the ad for the boat tour on this site and family vacation critic. The ad on fvc is very misleading and did not fulfill its claims. My children, husband and I were extremely disappointed and quite bored. The captain, Tony, was very bland...More

Had a really great time. Got to hold a lobster and see a lot of seals. Only had to book a day in advance. Boat was a bit rocky though so those who get seassick at all should defiantly pass.

We traveled on the 6pm LuLu Lobster boat tour recently. Our family of four had a great time. We enjoyed the small size of the boat (it seats 32 or 34, I believe), seeing the mansions along the shore, seeing all the seals on and...More

Convinced my wife to do this activity even though she's not crazy about boat trips. Fortunately, the seas were calm and the trap was full of lobsters (both large and small, males and females, who were gravid and ungravid). We also caught a crab and...More

I booked the 1:00 tour. It was great because it was less crowded than the morning or sunset tours. I happened to like the intimate experience.

I would think 8 or older would get the most out of the talk about the lobsters, but the scenery is enough to keep even the little ones engaged. The 2 hour trip is a good length for young kids
